: My War Years: Arnold Schoenberg

Until the early 1900s, Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg adhered to a late Romantic style, meeting with critical and popular success. Then his music began to break the bounds of traditional harmony and tonality, culminating in the development of his revolutionary method of composing using all 12 notes of the chromatic scale equally.
Public taste was outraged, and Schoenberg faced years of controversy: his self-termed "war years" between 1904 to 1923, when he often lived in poverty and isolation.
Focusing on that period, this film interweaves archive footage, photographs and location shots with dramatic re-enactments in the form of "home movies" and recreated
"interviews" with Schoenberg's contemporaries, including Webern, Berg, Zemlinsky, Kandinsky, Kokoschka and Alma Mahler. Performers include the Ensemble
Intercontemporain and the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Pierre Boulez and Michael Tilson Thomas.
Director Larry Weinstein
(A performance of Schoenberg's
Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night) is on BBC2 tomorrowat 7.40pm)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
